    Alright?

    I changed the case on my DSlite yesterday and neglected/forgot to change a couple of things when I did. The result, is in the picture below...

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Now, I think it looks a bit dodgy, but my other half thinks it's unique and cool so I'm torn! Do I keep it the way it is? Or do I spend another couple of hours sorting it?

    Also, has anyone done something similar? Pics please...

    Hello!

    I like it, it's got a sort of retro look going on now. I'd keep it like that, it's definitely different to what I normally see.

    What were the things you neglected/forgot etc ??? ....

    .... If it was the buttons - I actually quite like it (not sure if I'd like it if it was the other way round (Red Case/Black Buttons)

    ... If it was not putting the screw covers back on - I'd say, 'stick 'em back'.That part actually spoils the effect IMHO

    Before and after shots would have been good for a comparison. Was it black or red before? Or something else entirely?

    Oh the screw covers are going back on. It was the screens I actually forgot to change to black. The buttons were also something I forgot...

    I have a habit of getting 'good' ideas after a few beers! [​IMG]

    EDIT: I've got a before picture somewhere too, I'll upload it. It was originally red but the hinge predictably broke so I went black.
    EDIT2: Can't find the stupid photo. Just find a pic of a red DSLite somewhere on t'internet and mine looked exactly like it! lol:

    I have the similar blue/white case (white screen border). I didn't forget it, but intentionally decided to leave it this way, since the top screen cover with the new case was a piece of crap. So, now I really like it being two-color.

    And this one, black/red are just good - looks like a retro gameboy special edition [​IMG].

    Sweet, I'm glad everyone likes it. Since I've put the rest of the screw covers on, I've warmed to it too.

    It does look kinda retro, which is nice.

    It's got a red stylus but the volume and power sliders are black.

    Plus, now I don't have to spend hours sorting it! [​IMG]

    I really like it, good job.

    The Black/Red go together, reminds me of the NES controller.

    I really like it but I've always liked black and red together.

    I think it looks rather cool.
    Certainly unique.

    Replace the screw covers with the red ones (assuming that they're still with you and usable), I feel that it would enhance the effect... but mostly my OCD went haywire.

    I think it looks good, Red/Black is a great color combo. It does sorta remind me of a NES controller.

    As _Chaz_ says, if you've got the old red screw covers I think that'd complete the effect but it still looks brilliant.
